Soupapalooza  2012

It’s that time of year……..cold winter weather and soup.  They just go hand in hand.  Even if you’ve had a mild winter like many of us have, there’s still nothing better to warm the soul.  Soup, stew, chili, chowder…….have all been staples in our diets for centuries and  can be the perfect appetizer or a quick and easy meal.

Last year Kristen of Dine and Dish and I hosted Soupapalooza and it was such a huge success we promised to bring it back this year, even bigger and better!

So this year KitchenAid, Kristen and I, along with some other wonderful sponsors are inviting you to share your favorite soup recipes here at and starting February 28 thru March 5, 2012.

and like every great party……..there will be prizes from some fabulous sponsors!!

Big thanks to KitchenAid, Red Star Yeast and Le Creuset
